Would Hilary Clinton Made a Better President than Barack Obama?

When Obama first came to the scene to run for the presidential race, I thought that he was an amazing speaker and had a gracious demeanor. However, as time passed and he actually became president, I haven't been satisfied with his performance as our leader. I should have supported Hilary Clinton. Reason being: she was in the White House as First Lady for eight years. She was much involved in politics and government moreso than her husband, then President, Bill Clinton. I have to wonder due to her experience would Hilary Clinton made a better president than Barack Obama.

Probably so, and possibly she can be a first lady president, and her performance can be phenomenal than any male presidents before. We just don't know yet. I believe in one day, there will be a lady president stand up in the political stage of The United States of America. That is what I am thinking about. Anyway, would that be still a long way to go?

When I look back on the last presidential election, people were focused on Obama being the first African-American president. And I think that it is still great that many of the people voted for him because they thought that he would promote change--positive change to benefit the people. YET, to me, now, it isn't about that as more than it is about who can execute decisions well. Who can make decisions well. I feel like because Hilary Clinton has more experienced that Barack Obama, she might have made the better leader. She was in the White House for eight years...and even though she wasn't president, the First Lady is exposed to many of the President's decisions. She has an overall idea what was going on when her husband was leader of this country. In some ways, I think that she was her husband's unspoken apprentice. You have to be learning a lot around someone like that...unless you just don't want anything to do with it but your first lady duties. Plus, if she did need any help if she was elected, she has a well-experienced partner who went through that process. Whether she's a woman, isn't my concern as it is to a leader that can make sound decisions that will benefit Americans.

I don't think so, because I believe that Pres. Obama when along with this health care because this is what Hillary Clinton wanted and I feel that if Pres. Obama wouldn't had agreed to this Hillary would have never became his Sect. of state. Just my opinion....

Sirnose, That's interesting that you bring that up. It would be interesting to see if she would make those kind of decisions that President Obama has been making the past four years.

Hiya WP., Was hoping myself that Hilary Clinton just might get in there and stand a chance of becoming President. In fact when the last big election thing was going on we sat up here for ages hoping for her that she would get somewhere. DonĀ“t entirely know how she stands now but I would say that she seems very reliable at least to us who are from the outside of America and we all know that she has loads of experience behind her which is a lot to fall back on. xxx

I am on the other side of the fence and definitely would have preferred Hilary. I am much more conservative than either candidate but would have preferred more experience and common sense.
